When we published WISDOM, THE MIDWAY ALBATROSS, we always hoped the book would find its way to Japan. While the story focuses on how the oldest bird in the world survived the Japanese tsunami, the story is also about that March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami. We are excited to report that WISDOM is on the 2014-15 reading list for the Sakura Medal, which is a children’s book award given by the international schools in Japan. They give award to children’s book written in Japanese and in English. We are thrilled that this award will bring Wisdom’s story to the 15,000 students served in these 25 schools. Thank you, Sakura Medal for allowing us to share Wisdom’s story with a Japanese audience.

In honor of Mother’s Day, I am posting photos here of my mother, Edith LeGate Foster, and I’m creating a special Pinterest Board for Mother’s Day.

And of course, there’s our book about the oldest known wild bird in the world. On February 4th, 2014, Wisdom hatched a new chick. She is probably the oldest mother in the world.
